Kayak and Paddleboard Rentals in Quail Creek State Park

Connection. Decompression. Fitness. Rejuvenation.

These are some of the reasons we enjoy paddling and want to share our love of paddling with others. Growing up in Southern California, water sports and outdoor recreation played prominently in our unscheduled schedules. We are Bill and Michelle Ennis, and we are paddle-holics. From beach bonfires to our engagement photos, from sailing to surfing, and from being a pair of crazy kids to starting a family with five kids of our own, we have loved engaging outdoors and on the water.

We'll provide you with all the knowledge you need to enjoy kayaking and paddleboarding on our lake. A fantastic experience is paddleboarding and kayaking at Quail Creek Reservoir. You can go outside with us! Our mission is to provide a one-stop paddle sports shop for both novice and experienced paddlers. Kayak for a set price for a few hours or the whole day. Do you favor SUP? With the leading brands in the sector, we have you covered.

Our History

In 2011, we opened Washington County, Utah's first dedicated paddle operation. That's just what you do when you constantly invite your friends to paddle in the desert, and there are no available rental shops!

In 2014, Quail Creek State Park became available for us to operate at the water's edge. We have grown and expanded from that point, thanks to our customers' support and the cooperation and support of the state parks.

Our Team

We are WPA, PaddleFit, and PSUPA certified coaches. Our goal is to help people have the best experience that they can on the water. This is accomplished through having good equipment and experienced instructors with the right skill set and a proper mindset, which we strive to share with all of our guests.

Dig Paddlesports has a great team of instructors, staff, and volunteers that help to make everyday rentals, sales, family reunions, dates, parties, and other custom events a success for you.
